Local Indie Music Examiner



Lately I have been writing for a couple of boutique public relations firms and brand management companies, which has been a daunting, stressful, task.

Q&A:Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors



A couple of weeks ago I got a chance to talk to Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors. Here is an interview that I did for the Phoenix New Times blog.

We have been participating in tons of extra curricular activities, too. For one thing, Chase and I are back at school–everyone works, […]
